Taking place after the events of Pikmin 3 Deluxe's Side Stories, Captain Olimar and Louie go back to Hocotate, and plan a vacation for the two of them, the President and Olimar's family. On vacation, Olimar will go to PNF-404 to have the vacation. Some weeks later, the vacation goes on, only for the ship to crash, seperating all of them. It is now up to Olimar to find his friends, of course with the help of Pikmin.

Meanwhile, the Koppaites go back to Koppai, only for the President of the Koppai Fruit Company to tell them to go back to PNF-404 to get more fruits as they don't have enough.

Eventually, the two missions merge when Olimar (with Louie and the President reunited) bumps into Alph, Brittany and Charlie meaning that the two trios must work together


The gameplay is mostly the same: throw Pikmin for them to do tasks and help you with puzzles. However, before the two trios merge, the story mode is split into various scenarios with either the Hocotatians or Koppaites. Caves from Pikmin 2 are back, going up to 30 sublevels with many bosses. However, bosses are both underground and on the surface. The player must collect fruits, treasures and ship parts.

The challenge mode is back to the formula of Pikmin 1 and 2 but mixed. The Collect Treasure! stages are the stages from Pikmin 1, 2 and 3 remastered and shorter with a different layout. The Battle Enemies! stages are completely new caves and some challenge mode caves from Pikmin 2 as well as remastered caves from Pikmin 2. The Defeat Bosses! stages are caves, only 4 of them with a boss on each sublevel. The first cave has every boss from Pikmin 1, the second cave has every boss from Pikmin 2, the third cave has every boss and miniboss from Pikmin 3 and the fourth and final cave has every boss and miniboss from Pikmin 4.

Versus mode is similar to Pikmin 3's Bingo Battle mode but there is an extra sub-mode that makes Player 1 and Player 2 work together. Some stages are caves, some are on land and some are boss stages.
